Jim Jones Arrested in New Jersey, Keeps Fans Updated Via Twitter
Having run-ins with the law is becoming a familiar routine for rapper Jim Jones. On April 6, he was pulled over by New Jersey police for a missing front license plate. Following the traffic stop it was discovered that he had an outstanding warrant for unpaid parking tickets. He was then taken to the police precinct in Teaneck, NJ, where he posted $120 bail and was released.
And in true celeb fashion, Jones commented on the arrest via Twitter: "I decide to drive by myself ... let's see how this plays out ... the funny part was watching them have to count all the money in my pocket lol I must say they were very cool...And it was a punk ass warrant from 2005 for 120 dollars...Make sure you pay old tickets."
Jones rejected a plea deal on March 24, stemming from an allegedly attack on R&B singer Ne-Yo's manager Jayvon Smith outside the New York Louis Vuitton Flagship store on Christmas Eve. He is set to stand trial on April 21. Jones' fourth album, 'Pray IV Reign,' is in stores now.
